    Hi,
    I am new to Mac; have been a PC user for decades and finally joining the Apple world.

    I just bought a Mac Book Pro and want to connect it to an external monitor that can also serve as a TV. I've always had good luck with Samsung monitors. Would the P2570HD monitor work well with the Mac Book Pro?

    It supports 1920x1080 resolution. Isn't that different than the MB Pro produces on its laptop screen? I assume I want to drive the monitor at that resolution and not a different one. Correct?

    Does anyone have this or similar monitor such as the P2370HD or P2770HD, etc?

    Is it easy to switch back and forth from TV to computer inputs to the monitor?

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks,
    Steve

    Of course it will work. The MBP will drive that res without any issues at all.. Switching inputs should be easy and quick.

    I can second that. I am currently using a Samsung 1080p HDTV as TV/Monitor and it's working out extremely well. Very nice setup if i do say so myself. :D
